FLF's debut community event featured seven bluegrass bands organized by Brookdale Bluegrass's Eric Burman, a dedicated member of FLF. Homefire headed the bill, and the evening featured a silent auction and raffle organized by Elica Burton, an art contest (which resulted in FLF's notecards), an exhibit on the history of Felton and its library (prepared by Lorraine Sintetos), and fine refreshments. The evening brought over $2000 towards FLF's activities, and raised community awareness of the value of its branch library.

In October 2005, Felton Library Friends sponsored an art contest for depictions of the Faye G. Belardi Memorial. Seventeen submissions were displayed at the Bluegrass Festival that month at the Felton Community Hall, and public vote determined the three winners. FLF has chosen four of the artworks for notecards, with sales to benefit the efforts of FLF. The cards will be available for purchase beginning April 20 at the New Leaf Community Day. Thereafter, cards will be placed at the Felton branch and other locations to be announced. Donation for the cards will be $6.00 for four cards.
